    Ah, the dining courts. The waiting for an hour on chicken tender and make your own mac and cheese night. I, personally, like the food. It's pretty good. Plus if you have the meal plan it's SO convenient. The way it works is like this: You buy a plan (say 13 swipes per week). 3 meals a day, the courts are open 3 times a day for 6 days, closed Sunday (if I remember correctly). So you are basically covered for the whole week. Plus you get to eat and not have to worry about cooking yourself food or buying groceries. Plus if you can't sit down and eat, there are on-the-go options. But, if you don't want to pay for the meal plan (which could be expensive depending on what you get) there are plenty of restaurants to go to or order from. Because delivery is huge on campus, why walk to a place when someone can bring the food to you? read full review

    Purdue is a large school, so it has the large school resources. You can do just about anything. Technically it is a dry campus, so alcohol is not allowed on campus grounds. However parties do occur off campus property, and are a good time for those who drink and those who do not alike. There are tons of events year round. Concerts are a must and so massive names come through. I am a Sophomore and just in my time at Purdue we have had names like: Hunter Hayes, Waka Flocka, Panic! at the Disco, Lolo, Hoodie Allen, Small pools, ext, and this upcoming spring Cage the Elephant. As well as other shows such as illusionists and the like. Typically these are free or offered at a incredibly reduced price for students. Free movies on campus are very common and held in various places. In the union there is an arcade in a bowling alley. For the more fitness types our gym, the Corec, is a $100,000,000 facility that is about an entire block and four stories tall. Intramural sports are also very popular. We are in the Big Ten athletic conference with sports that experience various degrees of success and are A BLAST to go to. Our marching band, the All American Marching Band, is extremely popular to watch and put on incredible shows during the football games. School spirit is an enormous part of the Purdue Experience and is seen in almost everything we do, including the famous Purdue Grand Prix, a go-cart race held in the spring semester every year. Once you become 21, the bars are available to you in town including names like Harry's chocolate factory which has been ranked as the best college bar in the nation before. read full review
